5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource For HTML5 & CSS3, July 27, 2011
This review is from: HTML5 & CSS3 For The Real World (Paperback)
'HTML5 & CSS3 For The Real World' is a great book for all new and experienced web developers looking to learn the tricks of the trade or discover what new goodies come with developing for the web today. I have been reading sitepoint books ever since they were first released in the mid 2000s and I find them to be some of the easiest books to read and enjoy on the market. The design is always the easiest to read, writing is top-notch, and they are not overwhelming. They always seem to yell out at the reader "enjoy me" and that is exactly what happens.

All the major facets of the developing on the web are present here:

- basic markups of HMTL5
- forms and validating
- what you can do with CSS3 to make your pages come to LIFE
- layouts
- geolocation usage
- SVG fun

and last but not least, videos in HTML5, possibly the most important improvement so browsers aren't so reliant on Flash.

At ~350 pages, this is a size that feels right. I guess my only complaint is that I wish there was color within, but that isn't enough to keep me from giving this a thumbs up

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
